The streets of Johannesburg, South Africa are filled with tough guys and gangsters, but after the death of his father, the street-wise Atang (Zenzo Ngqobe) leaves the hustle of the city streets to return to his ancestral village in Lesotho. As is required, Atang must bury his estranged father in the remote, mountainous village of where he was born. Stirred by fresh memories of his youth, Atang falls in love with his childhood friend Dineo (Nozipho Nkelemba) and rediscovers the power of the past he has forsaken. Andrew Mudge’s THE FORGOTTEN KINGDOM is a ravishingly photographed exploration of the power of tradition.
